Volume too high at startup of application

Postby weissnich » Wed Jul 02, 2014 1:55 pm

I recognized the following problem with linux mint 17 xfce edition,
whenever I use vlc oder other programs after starting mint, the volume is maximized (very loud) and after i use the volume bar it is instantly much lower, but after startup again the same problem occurs.
I have an USB soundcard, is there a solution to this annoying problem?

I remember having this problem before in xfce and after removing xfce4-mixer all was ok and pulseaudio didn't make problems with this annoying maximized volume on startup,
but I see that Mint xfce doesn't use xfce4-mixer, can somebody help until my ears are totally damaged :lol:

I'm using Mint 17 Xfce and the (global) volume stays where it was set, between boots.

You might use 'amixer' in your startup to set the volume where you want it.

$ man amixer
$ amixer --help
Mint 18 Mate/fluxbox/pulse-less - Xubuntu 16.04/fluxbox/pulse-less
